The Veiled Heart

#SexySnippets 17th August 2014

Every Sunday, a group of us sign up at the Nuthouse Scribblers blog and post a sexy snippet: 7 sentences from a work in progress. Here’s mine for the week from The Veiled Heart.

“This seduction really isn’t necessary,” her eyes flashed up and looked into his.

He laughed that fortified viscous sound and it felt like it slid over her skin in the same way his hand was gliding over her body.

“What?” he must think she was so foolish.

She wriggled to get up but he didn’t move; nor did he mock her, instead his touch continued to meander over her body in long, slow, rhythmic strokes.

“A body needs to relax Lily,” his breath tickled her ear, “even when pleasure is solely in the pursuit of knowledge.” His voice was muffled as he pressed his mouth to her neck.

Hot lips touched at the exact point between her tightly buttoned jacket and the veil that was molded under her chin and around her face;  it was the only piece of bare flesh on show.

It felt hot.

Very hot as his tongue stroked across her skin.
